A PROLIFIC DUCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 7 October 1926

A PROLIFIC DUCK. Over 12 months ago a Waimate (New Zealand) woman bought a duck for one shilling, with the intention of serving it up for dinner eventually on some   special occasion. Upon arrival at its new home, however, the bird immedi- ately made its first contribution to- wards its keep, an egg being found in the yard. It was then agreed that the death sentence should be commuted. The act of clemency has well repaid the bird's owner, who for 365 consecu- tive days has been presented by her duck with an egg a day. This must be something in the nature of a record and the bird is said to be still main- taining her output. Many breeders have tried to induce the fortunate owner to part with the paragon duck, but offers of £1 and over have been resolutely declined.
